Arghghgh! I'm not having a good day and having a very hard time ignoring my pain! I related to this part of the day 11 post from armchair. It is about facing up to my low self-esteem, its origins and the behaviors I've created. I feel like the uptick in pain is a result of opening this can of worms, even though i thought I had dealt with so much of it before in my life. I remembered reading that we don't have to "fix" these problems but just be AWARE that they are trigger thoughts for distraction. Just saying that makes me feel a bit weepy. Feelings are good, right? Right?? Facing up to my low self-esteem, its origins, and the behaviors I've created to cope with it is hard. But it's way better than being a captive to the gremlin.
